#1440   Wood Buddhist deity figure, Doryo Daigongen - The Great Avatar Doryo (a gongen is an old Shinto god later assimilated into Buddhism, keeping its dual nature). In the 14th century, a mountain ascetic became a Soto Zen monk at the Daiyuzan Temple, Kanazawa Prefecture, and vowed that when he died, he would become a guardian of the Temple. After his death in 1411, he did so, becoming a winged Tengu-Fudo deity standing on a white fox. He promised a long life free from illness and full of riches for his followers. Fudo is a well-known Buddhist deity, a fierce countenance always with a flame mandora. Doryo was a local winged mountain karasu tengu with a bird-like beak. The white fox is Inari, a Shinto messenger to the gods - something for everyone! This somewhat rare, storied deity is 10.5"h x 4,25"w x 3.5"d (figure and stand). Parts of the flame mandora have been restored, as has the fox's tail (all old repairs). Original box.  C.1860 . . . $600
